Elderly people may stop attending to their personal care needs to due to dementia, depression or inability to perform tasks which used to be simple. Grooming, bathing and dressing may become a challenge for them. They may find buttons difficult to maneuver and hairbrushes difficult to pull through knotted hair. They may be forgetful or stop noticing basic aspects of hygiene and grooming.
Family members can sometimes help with these tasks but often they aren’t available at the times that grooming takes place. Or they run into problems convincing their loved one to cooperate. The senior is scared or modest and refuses the help, leading to arguments and upset.
